‘CHOP SHOP’ SCENE FROM ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN’ NOW AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH
Thursday, June 11 by

CHop Shop from REVENGE OF THE FALLEN – Watch more Movie Trailers This same scene has been available in German for about a day now and… I think I liked it better when I had no idea what 'Wheelie' was saying.  It's the first time the majority of us have heard the pesky little Decepticon's English-language voice and he comes off like some comedian working the room up in the Catskills.  I hope Revenge of the Fallen takes time to explain how some of the Transformers came to adopting regional colloquialisms and accents, unlike the first film.  I kept waiting to see the deleted scene from that one where Jazz crash lands on Earth and immediately devours every Wayans Brothers movie he can get his giant metal hands on.  Word up, Optimus!

STEPHEN SOMMERS NOT FIRED FROM ‘G.I. JOE’ MOVIE
Thursday, June 11 by

The interweb was aflurry all morning with rumors that GI Joe: Rise of Cobra director Stephen Sommers had been taken off the movie and locked out of the edit room.  The reason?  According to some, the film was testing the lowest a film from Paramount has ever tested.  And Paramount put out Britney Spears's Crossroads. Well, turns out rumoring is half the battle (G.I. JOOOOOE!!!), because Movieline.com reports – with 100% assurance, mind you – that the whole story is bullsh*t.  Read Movieline's investigative report here. I'm a fan of the original Mummy.  After that, I can't say I've been in love, infatuated, or even vaguely felt anything like an emotion toward Stephen Sommers's films.  In fact, I think I remember my therapist chastising me for "putting up a wall" when he asked me if he should go see Van Helsing opening weekend.  So it's not surprising that there were rumblings of Sommers being scrutinized for his approach to filming a beloved '80s property. 

DENZEL & TRAVOLTA CAREER TIMELINE
Thursday, June 11 by

This Friday, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 opens and marks the first time two of cinema’s larger-than-life icons star opposite each other. Both born in 1954, John Travolta and Denzel Washington have had storied, if not tumultuous careers. We’ve decided to map out their careers like New York MTA maps train routes in the hopes it will shed some light on the box office success of 'Pelham.  Is their train right on time or did it just miss the station by a New York Minute?

SCORSESE’S ‘SHUTTER ISLAND’ GETS A TRAILER
Wednesday, June 10 by

Martin Scorsese's newest film, Shutter Island, a drama set in an insane asylum got a new trailer today and… well… it looks suitably insane.  Some may say it's off-the-hook insane.  Those people would possibly be using a combination of hyperbole and street slang.  Check out the trailer after the jump and see star Leonardo DiCaprio descend into the deepest, darkest bowels of madness, where even Michelle Williams manages to still look really hot.

VASSUP?! NEW ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF DER FALLEN’ CLIPS… IN GERMAN!
Wednesday, June 10 by

I want so badly for the German dub to refer to Optimus Prime as David Hasselbot. Two new clips from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen just surfaced on the 'nets today, and you're in for some real spoilers, if you speak German.  Otherwise, it's just a lot of robot carnage.  I hate missing all the nuances in Michael Bay films… Check out this clip, where Tyrese says, with great gravitas, "Oh, nein!" as the Decepticon known as Demolishor shows off how accurate Transformers are with their etymology.  I can't help but imagine if Will Smith were reacting to this, he would have chimed in with an "Awww HELL nein!" German TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN Clip – Watch more Funny Videos After the jump, watch another clip with Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox attempting to deal with a pesky little bugger named Wheelie.  Also in German.

COMMANDO GETTING A REMAKE?
Wednesday, June 10 by

Remember when I said they'd make a Commando sequel before they'd reboot the film?  I lied.  Actually, I never said anything about anything.  But the rumors have started flooding in, and Slashfilm has found several instances of corroborating evidence that indeed, a Commando sequel just might be in development… and that it might have a star already willing to take up the John Matrix mantle. The trail of clues starts in Australia, where, according to JoBlo, there's an article in a magazine called RCI that simply states a remake is being developed. Okay.  But what of it?  I heard Fox just optioned the remake of Tom Rothman's dream he had last night, a dream that was essentially a reënvisioning of Garfield 2. But there's more.  CineFools.com also has picked up on the possibility that Dwayne Johnson is attached to the film already.  I don't know how I feel about this.  I think I have to meditate on it by watching the GREATEST opening credits sequence of all time… from the original Commando.  You can watch it, too, after the jump.

5 ‘CAUGHT MASTURBATING’ MOVIE SCENES
Wednesday, June 10 by

Different smart people are always debating what it is that movies are supposed to do for us. From "transcending the emptiness of our modern lives" to "reflecting our secret desires," somebody always has some crackpot theory about what a movie means.  So what does it mean that dudes getting interrupted while wanking it is in almost every kind of movie you can imagine? Drama, Coming of Age, Suburban Comedy, 1990's Hip Hop parody comedy.  Here, in an intro to the genre, we present you with a survey course, Movie Masturbatus Interruptus 101.   AMERICAN PIE

  A new episode of "Man in the Box" went up today, and while it's not movie or TV related – not in the least – it still happens on a screen, so… yeah we're stretching.  But it's a particularly funny episode, and any piece of original content that has the line, "Why don't you just go bang REO Speedwagon, then!" has our seal of approval.

MICKEY ROURKE IS WHIPLASH IN ‘IRON MAN 2′
Tuesday, June 9 by

Above is the first official look at Mickey Rourke as baddie "Whiplash" in Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2: Our Secrecy Has Become Self-Parody.  Originally, the character of Whiplash was female, but has since been reënvisioned as a dude whose real name is "Marc Scarlotti" within Marvel's Ultimate line of titles.  Here's a pic:On the downside, the Rourke version of Whiplash kinda looks like a pirate from the future.  On the upside, the Marvel comics version of Whiplash looks like DC Comics' Bane character.  And something tells me that the image of Rourke is pre-official costume.  That "something" is the official Iron Man 2 Whiplash concept art, which you can see after the jump.

Zack Morris on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’
Tuesday, June 9 by

Kudos to you, Mark Paul Gosselaar, for being able to make fun of yourself.  Kudos, to you, sir!  Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Mark Paul Gosselaar, currently starring in "Raising the Bar" on TNT, showed up in full "Saved By the Bell" Zach Morris regalia, and did a classic Zach Morris direct-address to camera.  It was kind of uncanny how much he can still pull off Bayside High's coolest student ever.  The phone you could choke a horse with played no small part in selling it.  Say what you want about Jimmy Fallon as a host.  He's still finding his legs.  But you can't deny he and his team of writers – including head staffer A.D. Miles from "The State" – are coming up with some material that rivals Conan's Late Night crew.

SUMMER MOVIES… AND SNUGGIES!
Monday, June 8 by

The Snuggie.  You may not own one, but you probably know someone who does, or at least you're familiar with the "blanket with sleeves" that's become a bit of a internet meme.  It's such a ridiculous yet attractive product that it's managed to seep its way into mainstream media, making appearances on shows like "30 Rock," and "The Big Bang Theory."  And much of its popularity seems to be based on this really lo-fi – some may say terrible – commercial.  Snuggie Commercial – Watch more Funny Videos

Colbert in Iraq, Stewart Fights at Home
Sunday, June 7 by

The big news in basic cable this weekend was that Stephen Colbert, comedian and host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" has arrived in Iraq for a week of taping the program from an actual war zone.  It's a bold move on Comedy Central's part and, depending on your definition of "war zone," potentially a very brave move on Colbert, himself.  But some could argue that Colbert still has a lot of work to do if he wants to rival his colleague, "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart in the race to be dubbed a Real American Hero. Loyal reader Ron Najor made such an argument in an impassioned email sent to Screen Junkies this weekend, and we liked it so much, we thought we'd publish it.  Unlike the majority of posts on SJ, this is a completely serious rant.  But don’t panic.  We embedded some funny clips.

HIGH TENSION! NEW CLIPS & IMAGES FROM ‘THE HURT LOCKER’
Friday, June 5 by

Today, Summit released two new clips and six new stills from the upcoming Kathryn Bigelow-directed war movie, The Hurt Locker, opening June 26th.  The first clip, entitled "Die Comfortably," features loose-cannon Staff Sgt. William James (the badass Jeremy Renner) resigning himself to the fact that if the bomb he's diffusing goes off, his armor isn't doing squat to save his life.  The other clip, which you can watch after the jump, is called "Cell Phone, Two O'clock," and gives a tiny clip of the film's tension quotient, as St. Matt Thompson (Guy Pearce) – bedecked in full blast suit and all – is compromised by an insurgent with a cell phone-cum-detonator.  And the guy's got Thompson's number… on speed dial…  Check out the clip after the jump.                      We'll have a review for anxiety-inducing The Hurt Locker coming soon, but suffice it to say my sphincter was clenched the entire movie so as to avoid dropping a deuce in the pristine Wilshire Screening Room.  And I want to be invited back there.

MIKE TYSON’S ‘HANGOVER’ SET TOUR
Thursday, June 4 by

EDITOR'S NOTE: After posting what we thought was a funny riff on Mike Tyson – essentially a fake "on set journal" kept by the famed fighter during his work on The Hangover – some of our readers made it known that in late May, Tyson suffered the tragic loss of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus.  We agree with these readers that right now is not the time to be placing a humorous spotlight on Tyson, and have removed the original post.  Screen Junkies offers our sincere condolences to Tyson and his family.

IT MIGHT GET LOUD TRAILER – Watch more Funny Videos In directing An Inconvenient Truth, filmmaker Davis Guggenheim basically managed to make a guy in a suit giving a Powerpoint presentation engaging.  So it stands to reason that his upcoming film, It Might Get Loud, which gives an intimate look into the lives of guitar gods new, old and middle aged – Jack White, Jimmy Page and U2's The Edge, respectively – will be the documentary equivalent of a 90-minute H.J.  An H.J. with a most bitchin' soundtrack.  An H.J. with at least three solos involved.  But not a solo H.J.  That's just masturbation. Read more on the project and check out some production photos of the legendary guitar heroes after the jump.  Try not to throw your panties at the computer.

‘THE FINAL DESTINATION’ GETS A TRAILER

THE Final Destination Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers The new trailer for The Final Destination – a title that either means it's THE definitive chapter in the series, or the filmmakers are huge Ohio State fans – premiered today, and we have it (above).  I've been a fan of the Final Destination films. They're good, schlocky fun and don't pretend to be anything else.  This one's in 3-D, no less, and I can't think of a more perfect type of film to make egregious use of the ever-improving 3-D technologies, until they figure out holographic porn.  That's when James Cameron quits.
